Abstract Mining wastes and calcines from two abandoned mining areas (Valle del Azogue and Bayarque in Almeria) have been characterized. In the mining wastes, the dominant mercury phases are cinnabar and elemental mercury in the matrix. In the calcines, however, the dominant mercury phase is elemental mercury bounded to the matrix. Water-leaching experiments were conducted on low-grade stockpiles and calcines in order to simulate the mobilization of mercury by runoff under environmental… CONTINUE READING
